Thin Mint Brownies

Today I am linking up with Tamara and Brianna for Tasty Tuesdays!


What's a girl to do with extra boxes of Girl Scout cookies? Well, throw them in a recipe of course! This brownies were so yummy that David, who is not a fan of mint flavored things, had more than a few;-)

1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp peppermint extract
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 sleeve Thin Mint cookies, crushed

Preheat oven to 350.
Line an 8 or 9-inch square pan with foil and grease.
In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and cocoa until combined.
Add sugar and mix.
Add eggs, one at a time, and mix until mixture is blended.
Stir in vanilla, peppermint extract, flour, and salt.
Fold in Thin Mints.
Pour batter into the prepared pan, spreading evenly.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, be careful not to overbake!
 Remove from oven and allow to cool before cutting into squares.
